Safety-critical airport workers continue strike
Hugh Caffrey, North West Socialist Party
Safety-critical workers at Liverpool's John Lennon Airport are continuing their strike action against the real-terms pay cut their employer is trying to force on them. Aviation rescue and fire-fighting; the control room; engineering; and driver operations and airport bird control - these are the kinds of jobs done by these workers, who most people would see as incredibly valuable.
But Liverpool Airport Limited - and, we understand, particularly its new chief executive - seem to want a fight with the workers and say that any pay rise above their offer of 2.2% and a one-off £150 payment would break the budget.
The next strike is 26 September and we urge readers of the Socialist to visit the picket line near the main entrance to the airport.
